    For whatever reason, I read the shoes in the listing of items first and stopped dead and actually utter aloud "No, you're kidding crusty!". Then I realized the date...

    I have an interjection problem, much to the disappointment of my wife. Wait, what are we talking about?

    That jacket is very nice, wouldn't imagined that SuitSupply did that kind of good stuff. Too bad they don't ship to Mexico... [​IMG]

    thank you, sir
    not long, it just covers all of my ass
    my last MTM from the same tailor, i ended up getting the jacket too short (my fault for asking him to shorten it at the fitting), so this time i made sure to get it at the proper length

    probably looks more balanced in this shot
    pic is still distorted because of the angle and mirrored surface ... but i think you can see better since i was standing farther away

    weren't you in some other country before? now you're in VA/DC area?

    No, but I smoked with my head outside of the kitchen window, never really inside the house. I haven't noticed much difference in taste or smell, not even after 1 week 2 days 18 hours 47 minutes and 35 seconds. I guess they weren't that bad to begin with : ).

    Seven years, that's great. [U2]I will follow[/U2].

    Is there a difference between Ballantyne Made in Italy vs Made in Romania?

    I don't think I've ever seen a Ballantyne garment which was made in Romania. More details?

    It's an item on ebay which is allegedly a Ballantyne. Seller is in NJ, with feedback 10k+

    I asked where the item was made...what the label said.

    Reply: These are either made in Italy or Romania. one or other.

    Me: Thanks for letting me know. can you check which one, italy or romania?

    Reply (cut and pasted): They are the SAME no difference same fabric same
    machinery just different less expensive but BETTER hands in Romania
    If I show you 2 identical you will not see a single difference just cost less to
    produce for company
